As a seven-year member of the Journalism Association of Community Colleges, the Department and its publications (The Guardsman and etc magazine) have earned the praise of fellow colleagues (detailed awards listing).

JACC, which is nearing 50 years of operation, is an association of some 60 community college journalism programs throughout California and parts of Arizona. The association serves as a support group for journalism education in the community college system, it champions for First Amendment rights, and it annually sponsors faculty development training sessions. It also hosts a yearly statewide conference and two regional conferences aimed at heightening the professional development of students through workshops and competitions in writing, photography, page design, copy editing, and headline writing.

In these statewide and regional competitions, Guardsman staffers have steadily captured more than 15 awards each time in all categories, including five consecutive General Excellence honors for producing one of the best community college newspapers in the state and the region. In 1998, The Guardsman also earned the coveted Pacesetter Award for winning the most awards at the state conference.

In its short two years of operation, etc. magazine has also been honored at the statewide and regional level, capturing awards for feature writing, design, photography, and commentary. It has also earned consecutive General Excellence ratings for overall content and design. In the last two years, General Excellence honors were also bestowed on the Department for its online version of The Guardsman.

To date, City College is considered one of the powerhouses in community college journalism for its publications, curriculum, and overall program development. Furthermore, faculty member Juan Gonzales currently serves as Northern California JACC President and he sits on the JACC Executive Board.
